Awesome Coffee Book
I have browsed the book through different pages, and I am amazed at the deepness of the research. Any coffee lover should read it and people with prospects of becoming baristas. Great book, I highly recommended it.
I came across this book by chance... I was browsing about coffee on the internet while sipping a cup of one myself. I have never been able to pinpoint where the start of my interest or love for coffee began and it always amazed me to read up about this strange beverage.
When I found this book titled "All about coffee" I thought maybe this would have some history about how coffee came to be a daily part of our ordinary lives. But I was surprised at the depth of research and information this book provides. Glancing through the content made me recall one of those tiny maps in the museums that chart the whole area into little blocks of colours, telling us where we would find the story of a particular Art movement or importent moment in History. This book narrates the tale of coffee with soothing delight, bringing to our tables the luxurious portraits of silver cups and peculiar rituals that go on into the making of this drink. It's a journey through time and space, visiting the oldest quaint little coffee shops in Vienna, Paris or London while also smelling the deep insatiable aroma of the coffee beans plucked with great labour at the different plantations all over the world, an intense procedure dating back centuries and polished with finer nuances over the years.
Even if I might never be able to read the whole book at once, I would be happy to just sit with it now and then whenever i wished to disappear into the lanes of old Italy and watch the busy lady at the desk brew a cup of hot coffee. Beautiful, beautiful book!
